I found video on steps in replacing my head gaskets. In the video, the owner states to first torque head gasket bolts, in sequence, at 15 lbs psi and then to 30 lbs psi. However, the instructions that came with my head gasket, states to torque first at 200 lbs psi and then 370 lbs psi. First, who is correct and 2nd my torque wrench setting only goes as high as 150 lbs psi. I've included link to video, as well as the instructions that came with my head gasket kit. I've already torqued bolts to 30 lbs psi, but noticed on instruction sheet a totally different torque specs. The last thing I want to do is under torque these bolts and have leak all over again, or worse yet, over torque them and possibly snap head off bolt! This is my first time undertaking such a big job like this, but have learned alot along the way and I'm definitely a stickler for ensuring things get done right and no shortcuts! I'm all ears for any wisdom that anyone can assist me on with this endeavor please. Thanks

I have the Kohler 18 HP engine. My Cub Cadet 1863 S/N 891386 and Model 14A-664-100.

Thanks for catching what I missed......you were right! I did convert and they come out the same......
200 sq in lbs converts to 200 lbs psi?
